Abstract:

This Collection contains the original and published cartoons of Political Cartoonist and Milligan alumnus, Dan Foote. Most of his original drawings were for publication in the Dallas Times Herald, but there are publications from other well-known news organizations such as the Washington Post, CNN, and Newsweek. This collection also includes some of Foote’s early original drawings for the Milligan Stampede and various other Milligan publications.

Biographical Note:

Dan Foote attended Milligan College from 1979-1981 where he first took an interest in drawing political cartoons. He got his start drawing cartoons for Milligan College events and the Milligan Stampede. Though he originally came to Milligan intending to focus on Theatre, Foote credits God with sending his life on a different path and he was offered a job as a political cartoonist following his graduation. He is widely respected in his field, winning Dallas Press Club’s Best Cartoon Award in 1990 and receiving an honorable mention in the Fischetti Cartoon Competition. His work has been published in many national and international news publications including the Dallas Times Herald (where he was employed from 1989-1991), The Washington Post, US News, Newsweek, and The Wall Street Journal. He is also the author of many children’s books and screenplays. Foote now serves as the Men’s Community Pastor of Flatirons Community Church in Lafayette, Colorado. He met his wife, Amy, at Milligan College and they now have two children, Ben and Katie.
